Cristiano Ronaldo is rumored to be dating the daughter of his agent Jorge Mendes, according to Portuguese media.
The Real Madrid star who is very close to his agent has been dating Marisa Mendes, 24, the eldest of Jorge Mendes’ children according to reports in Portugal.
Speaking on the Jonathan Ross show this week, Ronaldo revealed that he has “a few” different women vying for his affection: “‘A few. I have to figure it out. Some know [they are competing]. I am normal.’
‘To speak serious, it is not easy. I know 50 per cent approach just for [celebrity] interest… It’s normal, not just me. All the famous people have these kind of problems.’”
News outlet Flash! Vidas have linked the two, with the pair posing for a photo shared by the former Manchester United star via his Instagram account on Thursday.
Marisa was also seen at the premiere of Ronaldo’s self-titled documentary in London and is a regular at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ronaldo has been single since his split with Russian model Irina Shayk in January this year after a five year relationship and since then has been romantically linked with a number of women.
The 30 year old recently credited his agent Mendes of having a huge impact on his career and revealed that Mendes helped him join Manchester United as an 18 year old.
“What Jorge did for me at 18 with the words of Ferguson was a dream. To play in Sporting and move was “wow, what is that?”
“When Ferguson wanted me and said I’d play 50 per cent of the games that was unbelievable.”
“I took that decision because Jorge helped me. The last word from Ferguson was key also.”
According to Spanish reports, Ronaldo attended his agent’s wedding as the best man and bought the super agent his own Greek island. Mendes married Sandra Barbosa in the affluent Foz do Douro.
Mendes, who has brokered more than £1billion of transfer deals has a client list that includes Jose Mourinho and David de Gea among others.
During his appearance at Jonathan Ross’ show, Ronaldo revealed that he will tell his son the identity of his mother when “the time is right”.
During the interview he also said that a third consecutive Ballon d’Or victory might be impossible in January insisting that Lionel Messi will regain the crown.
“This kind of trophy depends on votes and Messi won competitions. He won the Champions League and La Liga. In terms of individual [performances] I probably did the best season of my career, which is good. I was the highest scorer in Europe,” Ronaldo said.
